Try clicking on the red underlined TextView and either type Alt+Enter or click on the red lightbulb icon to the left. Then choose Import Class.

In the future, while you are typing a class name for a variable you'll see the auto-complete suggest a class to import. If you choose the right one, it will automatically complete the class name and put the correct import statement in if it's not already there.
